Our Planet What is It Future!!!!
The Future of the Earth
While humans for millennia have feared act of God such as deluge and drought, They now are vulnerable to much worse: "acts of man" played out through nature, “reports the global and mail newspaper of Canada. The United Nation Environment Program (UNEP) released a comprehension report urging action to correct environmental woes before it too late. Executive director of UNEP, Klaus Toepfer, says: "We know enough now to see how our actions or lack of actions might shape the environment and the inhabitants of extraordinary blue planet by 2032.
Some environmental progress has been made since UNEP was establish in 1972. As reported in The Toronto Star, "the quality of air and river waters has improved in Europe and North America, and checks on chemical emissions have made its possible for recovery of ozone layer damage," Also, forest management programs, such as those in Canada, Finland, Norway, and the United states, "are ensuring that the impact of over-harvesting of timber will be reduced, "Even so, the UNEP report says that if economic growth continues unchecked and more of the earth's surface is absorbed into cities, this cities, this will have a disastrous effect on wildlife and biodiversity. The Globe stated: "About half the world's rivers are polluted or seriously depleted, Eighty countries holding 40 per cent of the world's population have serious water shortages."
It is important, that is certain. If we don’t' know where we are going we won't know where we have been. If we don't know where we have been then we might accidentally fork-out eight bucks to watch all over again Peter Jackson's bad remake of King Kong when we could have spent the money more wisely on ten pounds of dental floss.
The Future is more, however than just a place-holder for where to find the Past and the Present. It is something, rather like a suit or a dress, which can be altered after you wolf-down a quart of strawberry ice cream and need to have your waistline taken-out about three inches.
We are at a crossroads. We can make the Future whatever we wish provided it is not too expensive and doesn't need house-trained. The Future is ours to mold, ours to shape and ours to determine. And not only that, but we can recycle it if we remember to put it in the blue-box that is every day of our life’s we keep living.
If you really want to know more about the Future you will have the chance, because, surprise! There it is, just around the corner...lurking there in the shadows...waiting for you to approach...ready with it's hand out-stretched...asking for sp The Future is also something which is not set in stone.
It is set in something more like silly-putty and hence amenable and can be worked upon, so always see tomorrow could be better that is if you work hard today to improve tomorrow, so never stand down there and say tomorrow will give birth to what it wants, you can work towards a good birth that the future will bring that is if you are prepared, to illustrate that, take for example a student who study so hard to make sure he or she pass her exam, she will always pass the exam and get a good grade because she prepared for the future.
Toepfer believes that decisive action can achieve position results.”He adds: "We need a concrete action plan..........concrete projects............ and above all a clear declaration." But what hope is there if world leaders are resistant to acting in the best interests of the planet?
Be assured, there is one who has made” a clear declaration" and who will take” decisive action"-Jehovah God. In fact, he has gone on record unambiguously stating that he will intervene and bring to ruin those ruining the Earth." (Revelation 11:18) Furthermore, God assures us that earth's ecosystems will be restored. The deserts will blossom. (Isaiah 35:1) Food will be plentiful. Rivers will be free of pollution. (Psalm 72:16; 98:8) God guarantees a blessing for every living thing on Earth.
